Browning announced the expansion of the AB3 line of rifles to include short action calibers. When these bolt action rifles were introduced two years ago, only long action calibers were available. Now Browning will sell these rifles chambered for the following calibers:
- .243 Win (21″ barrel)
- 7mm-08 (21″ barrel)
- .308 Win (21″ barrel)
- .270 WSM (23″ barrel)
- .300 WSM (23″ barrel)
The receiver is steel and is drilled and tapped for scope mounts. The barrel has a target crown and is free floated. The matte black stock is synthetic, and the magazine is detachable. Browning includes an Inflex Technology recoil pad with the rifle.
The suggested retail price on these rifles is the same as the existing models: $599.
